Project: Use of carbohydrate-binding proteins to increase stress tolerance of crops

project duration
23-DEC-09 – 22-DEC-11
Recently i was shown that salt or abscisic acid treatment, as well as pathogen infection of rice plants lead to the induction of several new types of plant lectins. This project aims to make a detailed study of these new proteins and their possible use to increase the stress tolerance of tobacco plants.
